The Japanese WordNet currently has 51,000 synsets with Japanese entries. In this paper, we discuss three methods of extending it: increasing the cover, linking it to examples in corpora and linking it to other resources (SUMO and GoiTaikei). In addition, we outline our plans to make it more useful by adding Japanese definition sentences to each synset. Finally, we discuss how releasing the corpus under an open license has led to the construction of interfaces in a variety of programming languages.
